Masa Harina (Ground Corn for Tortillas) - 1kg
Masa Harina - this Mexican gluten-free & GMO-free finely ground corn (maize) flour has a strong corn flavour. The perfect corn flour for making Mexican tortillas and other dishes such as tamales, enchiladas, sopes, quesadillas, empanadas, flautas etc.
This Masa Harina is a nixtamalized flour which means the corn has been treated with lime before being ground. This process allows that the Vitamin B and protein in the corn to be absorbed more easily when eaten, making the flour more nutritious. This nixtamalization process was first developed thousands of years ago.
To Make 10-12 Tortillas: mix 350g of masa harina with 330ml of warm water in a bowl. Let stand covered for 15 minutes. Knead in more water if necessary (it should feel like soft clay, but not sticky). Divide into 10-12 balls.
Heat a dry pan until hot. Press or roll the balls of dough into circles, 3mm deep, between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Or use our tortilla press for even, consistent result.
Put one tortilla gently into the pan. Cook for 15 seconds, then turn and cook for a further 30 seconds. Turn again and wait for the tortilla to puff. Remove from the pan, keep warm in a cloth while making the others.
